Image Refiners are able to meet all your raster to vector requirements. As you can see from the example image, we are able to produce really complex vector files. Below are some issues related to raster graphic and why vector graphic is required sometimes.
What is Raster Graphic?
Raster Graphic is a kind of image which is made of enormous numbers of pixels or dots. According to Wikipedia, Raster Graphic is,
“In computer graphics, a raster graphics image is a dot matrix data structure representing a generally rectangular grid of pixels, or points of color, viewable via a monitor, paper, or other display medium. Raster images are stored in image files with varying formats.”
Photograph is the most common type of raster graphic and Adobe Photoshop is the most common program to create and edit. Most common raster formats are jpg/jpeg, psd, png, tiff, bmp and gif extensions.
Advantages of Raster Graphic
Affluent Detail: You may see the term “dpi” here and there, but do you know what that means? It stands for “Dot Per Inch”, which is the symbol of huge numbers of information gather in a raster image.
Perfect Editing System: You can edit every pixel of Raster Graphic individually. It is an awesome advantage of raster graphic which allows you to modify the raster graphic as much as you want.
Disadvantages of Raster Graphic
File Size: One of the ugliest things of raster graphic is it slows down your pc when you deal with large files. Because here a 1” x 1” square at 300 dpi will have 300 individual points of color information for the computer to remember, which will slow any computer down.
Blurry trouble: Raster images have finite numbers of pixels, so when you enlarge the image, it will get blurry utterly.
On the other hand with vector graphics you can zoom the image as much as you can and it will not get blurry. So in many cases its really important to convert from raster to vector.
